Wellington: New Zealand batsman Bradley-John Watling, whose world record sixth-wicket partnership with skipper Brendon McCullum on Monday, gave the home team a crucial advantage in the second Test against India, said he feels proud of the effort as the visiting bowlers put him through a "storm".
Watling and McCullum put together a 352-run sixth-wicket stand that gave New Zealand a commanding 325-run lead over India. Watling scored his third Test century, 124 runs, while his partner was unbeaten on 281 going into the last day of the series.
"I am definitely very proud of the way we went about things today. I think Brendon batted extremely well again today and to be in the position we are now after two days ago, we are pretty pleased with how things went," said Watling, after the day's play.
